Located in the south west corner of the City of Richmond is the historic community of Steveston, where the mighty Fraser River meets the Pacific Ocean. Originally a farming community in the late 1800s and once home to 15 fish canneries, today beautiful seaside Steveston is port for Canada’s largest fishing fleet with more than 600 vessels.
The Steveston area of Richmond is located with Williams Road to the north, the Fraser River to the south, No 2 Road to the East and the Strait of Georgia to the west.
The neighbourhood areas of Steveston Village, Steveston North, Westwind and Steveston South are all just minutes from YVR and a only a short drive to the City of Vancouver. A highlight of the community is Steveston Community Park, a green 30 acre hub of activity in the heart of Steveston. Its unique and expansive playground and waterpark makes it a destination for families, and the park is home to the Steveston Community Centre that offers a fitness centre, indoor tennis, squash & racquetball courts and the architecturally distinct Martial Arts Centre, the first purpose-built Japanese dojo to be built outside of Japan. With the closing of the fish canneries a great deal of residential development has been undertaken, with many new deluxe condominiums and townhomes redefining the lands.
Steveston Village residents enjoy excellent local restaurants and unique shops, a scenic boardwalk popular with tourists and locals alike, beach access and parks, playgrounds and biking that all contribute to its appeal. The Steveston waterfront features the Gulf of Georgia Cannery, an official National Historic Site. Built in 1894, the cannery was the largest building of its kind and the leading producer of canned salmon in BC. Today when the sun shines, hundreds of people make the pilgrimage to Steveston to sample the great restaurants and cafes or buy fresh seafood directly from the Public Fish Sales Float at Fisherman’s Wharf. A must see in Steveston Village is Garry Point Park right on the water, with spectacular views of the South Arm of the Fraser River and the Gulf Islands. Garry Point Park has plenty of beach and waterfront access and is ideal for an afternoon picnic, after-dinner stroll or to watch the sunset.
